The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time has often been called the best game ever made since it came in 1998. Mitch Krpata of Joystick Division explains why that's totally not true.
NO! i wont listen, i wont read, i wont even open the article.
I saw the title and was like another hit seeking article but let me give it a chance and see if he might be correct. Waste of internet space and here is why. 1.Chores masquerading as gameplay Its Zelda and not God of War 3 - Every Zelda is based on puzzles and side quest and true fans of Zelda like they game as is. 2. A huge game world - with nothing in it This game came out on the N64 what the hell were you expecting Grand Theft Auto 4. Even games from this gen suffer the same issue Fall Out and Boderlands ring any bells. 3.Half-baked mini-games Mingames are optional and extends the game play - would you rather the game come with out the minigames. 4.Playing a flute as gameplay lynchpin How old are and why are you comparing Guitar Hero a game which main focus is a instrument to a game that its main focus is an adventure game. Also playing a guitar does not make you automatically cool. 5.Navi Now your just pulling sh!t out of your a$$. How is Navi any different than Cortana from Halo or Clank for Rachet. Article is crap period.
Pretty much. I have no regrets voting down this site. It's guttertrash, pure and simple.
Lol, this guys is just nitpicking. He deserves to be insulted xD Never understood why people think Navi is annoying. She never bothered me. =/
this game rocks if you disagree plz die :)
The thing is, and disagree if you will, is that a lot of gamers will definitly disagree with this game being the best game ever. (I aint one of them) but there will be others.
I totally agree with what your saying and to me Shadow of Colossus holds the crown of the best game ever. Every one has a pick for the best game ever but the article is BS because of the reasons he gave. Thats like complaining that Golden Eye 64 did not have regenerating health or that the first Street Fighter did not have online play. The guy is comparing a game that came out about 15 years ago to games that came out this gen. Zelda OOT was way ahead of other games in its time and still holds up to some games this gen.
Who would disagree? A bunch of frat-tard shooter bros chugging shots of Mountain Dew in their mom's basement? Chances are they have tunnel vision and only care about the next Fps the industry vomits out. As for the article, just another no-count site, run by a kid who probably started gaming this gen, trying to get his licks in. Pathetic.
I don't agree with this article, but the website is a pro endeavor run by Village Voice Media, and based on his personal blog I'm pretty sure the writer's been playing games since at least the NES. It's not some kid with a blog.
There is no best game ever. Only games that stand out from the rest. And it falls to the player to decide which in their OPINION is their favourite.
Basically because of the story and storytelling.
Cool story, bro.
Okay this game was the best game 15 year ago. Not so much anymore. People need to take off their nostalgia goggles and then take the other pair they have hidden underneath those ones.
So what is the best game then? A sh!tty, run of the mill shooter with checkpoints and regenerative health to ease the masses? Doesn't look like that game is entertaining enough for you to not have so much spare time on your hands bashing Nintendo around the clock. Why not waste your spare time around SONY or MS articles praising shooters since they're the "holy grail" of gaming? There may be bubbles in store for you there.
let me see oot is etter then uncharted better then god of war better then the other games i played so far so pritty much zelda is better then most gamnes that ever came out fps dont count cus der all the same my god they never change der all diffrent games from diff compensy then y do they all feel alike? ? bioshock and prime are the only actullty diffrent shooting games maye its cus u only dont walk on eway half the time XD
I had never played the original one until about 3 year's ago (Went with the PS1 over the N64) so I dont have the nostalgia with this game that most people have, and even I believe this is one of the best game's ever, if not THE best.
Seriously to complain about a game decade and a half later.... took 15 years to build up the courage. he probably is gonna hate the new zelda coming out too but im sure we wont find out till 2027!
LOL - What next reasons why Mario Brother 1 is way over rated and did nothing for the gaming industry.
HAHA! and how rescuing a princess as a plumber is just so stereotypical these days.
it did noting? last time i checked they would not have been any side scrolers without nintendo hmmm
While I agree, Navi is annoying as hell, I don't think this can be viewed as anything more than just a flawed opinion. OoT was great. I think MM was better but I still won't dispute OoT's status.
Ocarina is 15 years old and still plays well even now, You don't have to agree weather or not its the best game ever, But at least respect it for the great game it is and the game play innovations it implemented that are still being used today.
My favorite game of all time is Super Mario 64. OoT comes a close second. All in all, it is my favorite Zelda game. I am playing it right now on my 3DS as we speak. The Shadow Temple is my exact location of progress.
Both Super Mario 64 and OoT are the best of their respected franchise imo. The Shadow Temple, now thats a tough one, I got stuck there for awhile on The N64 untill I realized I had to shoot some bomb fruit lol.
yeah it is an excellent game and for me personally i dont think its the best game ever made.
Lol! Please come visit my crappy site.
My favorite game ever.
Nintendo fanboys think it blasphemous to write anything against their company,but to me it's the one of the laziest gaming companies of it's size.Even it's "innovative" hardware have their roots somewhere else,you just have to Google to find out.I was a Nintendo fan myself until the N64 era,but they have done nothing on the level of their rivals since the 2000's.
name a game better then zelda? and why stuff like online dont matter cus hey if ghe surevers down that means u dont like it anymoe XD and name a flatformer better then mario? i say rachet and clank comes closes but rachet and clanks lv design is far behind mario galxys
That is your opinion,and Okami is miles better than Zelda has ever been.Metroid is Nintendo's sole franchise which offers proper competition to contemporary games...but they had to screw that up with Other M.And Ratchet and Clank kicks Mario's ass all over the park with better level design,better characters,better powers and better story (which is a given,considering how lazy Nintendo is with those things).Nintendo patronizes you with mediocre bullshit,and you fanboys just cannot read between the lines.
